12/1/2006 - 5/10/2019Our sweet Gipper was ready but we were not. We would never be ready for being without our loving and handsome boy. The day was coming, we knew, after he was diagnosed with hemangio sarcoma back in January 2019. We prayed for whatever ‘quality of life’ time that we could get with him and we were blessed with 3 months of relatively good days. Dedicating his days to doing everything he loved and experiencing the life he enjoyed for 12 1/2 years was hopefully our final gift to him. Saying goodbye was the toughest thing we’ve ever had to do but were lovingly guided by Dr. Toby from Lap of Love. Our at home experience in saying goodbye was everything we could have asked for in giving Gipper a calm and peaceful sendoff. HIs life was well lived and he gave us more love and loyalty than could ever have been imagined. There is nothing greater than a dog’s love and for that, we will be forever grateful that he chose us to share his life with. Gipper was our constant companion in everything that we did and we miss him beyond words. His life is free of pain and suffering now and we know that he is running playfully and happily on the other side of that rainbow bridge until our reunion again someday. The love and joy he brought to our lives far outweighs the pain we feel now. We wouldn’t have missed it for the world and will forever hold him in whatever is left of our hearts that he didn’t take with him when he passed. Heaven gained a special angel. We love you forever, Gip! Scramble one good buddy.Denise DitsworthLas Vegas, NevadaMay 11, 2019
